How Junt@s Vamos Organizes
Junt@s Vamos believes that health is a human right and works to challenge systems that situate it as a privilege.
For Junt@s Vamos, cancer is not an individual battle, it is a collective walk. Group members support each other as they and members of their family live with
cancer as part of their lives.
Junt@s Vamos recognizes that cancer disparities are just one result of injustice, and we work in solidarity with others who demand justice.
[For example, in our collaborative work with asylum seekers who are in Ciudad Juárez because of the Trump administration’s MPP and metering policies.]
Junt@s Vamos resists marginalization, oppression and silencing of our voices through creating alliances across borders, refusing to be labeled by mainstream cancer organizations, and creating alternative vocabularies to describe and communicate our experiences. ["We are living, not surviving"]
